Our house...

Post by JMG » Tue Jun 30, 2020 5:03 pm

My wife and I closed on our house today. So excited to pile onto the lifetime of wonderful memories my Mamaw and Papaw built here. Thanks so much for all your prayers and encouragement guys.

Wonderful, well deserved outcome JMG.

So happy for you all, but especially for your kids.

Congrats.

Is your house, by any chance, in the middle of your street?

It's off to the side of the street like most. Boring, I know, but much safer.

I bet you are house-proud and a mess is not allowed.

I've got my work cut out for me before any shop fun. I have to first build a retaining wall beside the shop nearly 100' long about 3' tall. Then a new roof, then rewire it, and THEN I can start getting my tools in place. Going to take a lot of work and time, but I'm looking forward to building on what is here.
